Prepare For Summer Heat Now!

We’re weeks away from sweltering temperatures, hurricane warnings and bug

invasions. Before summer hits, make sure you and your home are prepared:

Give Your Air Conditioner a Checkup

• Replace your air filter to make sure the whole system runs smoothly.

• Clear debris on or around your vents or exhausts and clean off any dirt

from the main unit outside.

• Install programmable thermostats.

Test for Ventilation Leaks

• First, look for actual leaks: drafts in your windows and doors.

• Check your attic insulation for leaks and gaps.

Set Up a Barrier for Bugs

• Check caulking around windows and doors, fix any drafts/gaps with

new weather stripping and caulking.

• Spray outdoor perimeter with a pesticide, along with baseboards, sinks,

windows and doors.

Change Your Ceiling Fan Direction

• Run Ceiling Fans Counter-Clockwise for Summer Savings.

Prevent Water Damage

• Make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and caulked, too.

• Test gutters to look for water coming out of any places it shouldn’t.

• Inspect your roof (remove any debris and leaves while you’re up there).

Memorial Weekend Getaways

Here are some celebrations across America that offered something

special in honor of the Memorial Day holiday:

Palm Springs, Calif.: For Guaranteed Summer Weather

While most beach seasons are just beginning, Memorial Day marks the

end of bearable temps in the desert, so hotels and operators are running

specials for the holiday. Though other parts of California will be in the

midst of “May Gray” and “June Gloom,” Palm Springs still has nonstop

sunshine-plus dozens of vintage shops, acclaimed restaurants and an

enduring love for all things mid-century (its hotels and private homes offer

some of the best examples of 1950s modern architecture in the country).

Washington, D.c.: For Patriotism, Pomp And Circumstance

Washington D.C. is the most patriotic place to celebrate the holiday, with a

parade and plenty of pomp and circumstance taking place during special military

ceremonies. Arlington National Cemetery-which celebrated its 150 th anniversary

in May 2014-hosts a wreath-laying ceremony at 11 AM on Memorial Day at the

Tomb of the Unknowns accompanied by performances from the U.S. Navy Band.

Saint Louis: For The Ultimate Treasure Hunt

Don’t miss the largest flea market in the Midwest, Gypsy Caravan, an

annual Memorial Day event organized for the 44 th year by the St. Louis

Symphony Volunteer Association.

The Jersey Shore: For Family Fun And Rides Along The Iconic Boardwalk

Steel Pier, Atlantic City’s popular ocean side amusement park, debuted eight

new rides in 2013. Outside Atlantic City, check out the annual Wildwoods

International Kite Festival, the largest in North America, Friday thru Monday, an

event that starts Friday at noon with the “Unlocking of the Ocean” media event.

Austin: For Boating Season And Outdoor Fun

Head to Lake Travis to soak up some of Austin’s best weather of the year,

with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the eighties. Memorial Day

kicks off boating season here, so the place to be is the lake.

All about Cinco De Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo means “the fifth of May.” Cinco de Mayo is the anniversary

of a battle that took place between the Mexicans and the French in 1862.

• The battle is known as the Battle of Puebla and it celebrates Mexico’s

victory over the French. It also marks a turning point in Mexican national

pride. The victory made the Mexican people very happy and helped create

a feeling of national unity. • While Cinco de Mayo is a national holiday in

Mexico, it is mainly observed in the state capital of Puebla. However, in

the United States, it is becoming a popular holiday to celebrate Mexican

culture. • The largest Cinco de Mayo event in the world is held in Los

Angeles, California, where more than 600,000 people celebrate with music

and food. The whole event is called Festival de Fiesta Broadway. • There

aren’t any specific foods associated with Cinco de Mayo, but traditional

Mexican dishes such as enchiladas, burritos, guacamole and tacos

are popular. • The Mexican flag is green, white and red. The traditional

meaning is thought to be that green = hope and the independence

movement; white = purity and religion and red = Spain and union. The

emblem in the middle consists of an eagle and a snake, based on an Aztec

legend. Courtesy of: www.history.com/topics/holidays/cinco-de-mayo

through Thursday the Clubhouse can be rented until 9 PM; Friday and

Saturday until 10 PM. Contact RealManage at 1-866-473-2573 for further

Keeping Informed!

Please sign up through the community portal at https://ciranet.com/

ResidentPortal, join our Facebook page at Parkway Lakes for the most

current information about our community. Those of you who have

already volunteered to participate in the future will be contacted shortly

to plan upcoming events. Those of you who have yet to do so, please

come to any future meeting being announced and join in!

Neighborhood/Crime Watch

We can all participate in our Neighborhood/Crime Watch! It is easy! It’s

about neighbors looking out for each other.

When suspecting criminal activities, you are encouraged to contact the

police and not to intervene. Call Fort Bend Sheriff at 281-341-4665. An

alert and supportive neighborhood is the greatest single defense against

crime. By getting to know your neighbors and their vehicles, you will

most likely be aware of suspicious people, vehicles and/or sounds that

could indicate criminal activity. Be a good neighbor. Report suspicious

activity to the police.

Attention! Pet Poops / You Scoop

Please be respectful of community grounds and neighbors’ yards. If your

pet poops during your walk, be prepared to scoop and trash. Come with

a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. It may not be the

most fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show your respect for

every homeowner and our beautiful community.

Please Note - Pets On Leashes

It is the law in Fort Bend County that all pets must be vaccinated for

rabies, registered and restrained. All animals, when outside of an owner’s

means of restraint (i.e., in a fenced back yard), must be on a leash. For the

safety of all residents, please use all precautions with your pets and

keep them on leashes when walking pets in the community EVEN IF

YOU FEEL YOUR PET IS HARMLESS. If you see ANY animal roaming freely

in the neighborhood, immediately call Animal Control at 281-342-1512.

Even if you recognize the animal, be very careful approaching it, as you

do not know how it will react; if you can safely retrieve the animal, then

call the owner. Otherwise, Animal Control is your best and safest option.

Scouting News

Ella Hummeldorf earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts

Ella Hummeldorf, a Sophmore at Tompkins High School, has earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts. Ella is a member of Troop 127007 and has been a

Girl Scout since she was in Kindergarten. For her project, Ella built garden boxes with the help of her brothers and a group of Boy Scouts from Troop

1103 for Goddard Preschool in Cinco Ranch NW. Her inspiration for the garden boxes was her grandfather who is currently in bad health. Obesity is a

growing problem in America and Ella is hoping the new generation of kids will make better choices. Her goal was to educate young children on the

importance of eating healthy and how vegetables play a big part in that. She wanted to teach them about vegetables in a fun way so she created the

garden boxes, supplied starter seeds and tools. She hopes they will have fun watching them grow and will teach future generations about growing

vegetables and healthy eating. Her brother, Henry Hummeldorf, was a recent contestant on MasterChef Junior so she enlisted his help with some

recipes. Together they created a fun cookbook for the kids and Henry talked to the children about the recipes and how to make vegetables fun. Here

is a photo of Ella and Henry teaching the children and introducing them to their new gardens.

Katy Heroes Honored

by Teenagers

Students from Tompkins High School, Tays Junior High

and Woodcreek Junior High, have gathered together to

honor a number of Katy teachers, coaches and community

leaders who are ‘heroes’ to the young people.

A special dinner and awards presentation was held by the

youth who are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ

of Latter-day Saints. Aged between 12 and 18, each of

them was inspired to choose one person who has had a

significant influence for good in their lives. The students

then personally invited their ‘hero’ to attend the dinner.

During the evening each of the youth gave a short speech

to introduce their hero and explain why they had had

such a significant impact on them.

Among the heroes was Danny Hill, Girls Program Director

at Albion Hurricanes FC. He was invited by Tompkins

Junior, Terin Graham. Terin also plays for the Tompkins

Varsity team, which is currently ranked number one in

the nation. She was thrilled to publicly thank Danny for

his incredible contribution to women’s soccer. Danny

commented, “I was very touched when Terin invited me to be honored at the dinner. The best part of our job is watching these kids grow into fantastic

young people. Terin always brings a smile to my face and when I stood there listening to her talk it gave me a great peace and understanding of why I

still do this job. Thank you Terin and family for believing in me all those years ago and your continued belief ever since.”

The purpose of the evening was to thank the many people in the community who sacrifice so much of their time and energy to guide and teach the

young people in Katy. Says Brad Tippetts, one of the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Katy, “As a parent and leader, it can be

a scary proposition to send our kids into a world that at times is full of anger and selfishness. That’s why we’re so grateful for the many good people out

there who share in the responsibility of helping our kids grow into good, honorable adults and care enough to help build the type of character that will

make them good citizens and strong community members.”

Many of the students invited teachers, some brought Scout Leaders and one young man even invited his mom along to be his hero. There on the night were

Shetye Cypher, Tina Fairwell, Leanda Hunt, Stephanie Lewis, Todd McVey, Donald Artley, Dianne Kuper, Monti Marquez, Danny Hill, Amy Wernig, Marianne

Hudspeth, Ryleigh Gilpin, Amanda Robinson, Stephanie Mead, Holly Datwyler Ben Allsop, Mike Tinnell, Ann Batten-Bishop, Stacey Levin and Allan Ray.

As well as hosting the dinner and each making a speech, the youth played instruments and sang a choral number for invited guests.

Gardening Tips For May

Warm weather means our gardens and landscapes are growing fast.

Here are some tasks to keep your landscape beautiful and productive:

Flowers: Time to plant summer blooming perennials and annuals

including plumbago, zinnias, angelonia, purslane, lobularia,

sunflowers, yellow bells, pride of Barbados, duranta and bat-faced

cuphea.

Vegetables: May is a great time to plant, from seed or nursery plants,

okra, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, winter squash, pumpkins, basil,

peppers, lima beans, eggplant, garlic chives and Malabar greens. If

you don’t want to dedicate an area of your yard, consider planting

here and there in your flowerbeds. Edible landscaping is a popular

new trend!

Lawns: Water 1/2 to 1” of irrigation per week. A rain gauge or straight

sided container (such as a tuna fish can) will help you know how long

to run your irrigation system to apply 1/2”.

Weeding: Hand pull or hoe weeds while they are still young or better

yet, maintain a 3” layer of mulch in all vegetable and flowerbeds to

deter weeds from getting a start.

Pruning: Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to

promote new blooms.

Fertilizing: Fertilize flowerbeds and vegetable gardens w/slow release

organic fertilizer.

Water: Deep soakings between rain events is better than frequent

light sprinkling.

Birds: Spring migration continues until mid-May. Clean bird feeders!

Replace water in bird baths to avoid creating mosquito breeding

spots.
